For the past month i have been very confused.
Has anyone else had the same issue?
For the past month, the AD server seems to randomly reboot every night or every couple nights.
for a trial we took off HBSS, it was still crashing so we uninstalled all instances including Mcafee 8.8. We let it go for a week, it stopped crashing..
We then decided to reinstall Mcafee enterprise and we once again were rebooting.
I wasn't seeing the Event Code 109 in the error log, but I was seeing an unexpected crash/shutdown. I wasn't able to isolate when/why it was crashing with the AV reinstalled.
I cant find anyting in the error logs to tell me why.
This ONLY is occuring with the AD servers, all other Windows 2003 R2 Servers are perfectly fine.
could be a possible conflicting stig?
Do you have Patch 2 installed for 8.8?
Other thing you can try, disable the automatic restart after a system crash and plug in a display in the server. That way you should be able to see the actual bluescreen (if it bluescreens) including the error code and maybe a driver.
Thank you for such a quick reply.. I did confirm it is using patch 2... i wish it were that simple.
I will do as you suggest to disable auto reboot.
Any other suggestions always welcome
